For the month of February we have selected new students/ teachers of the month. The students are Lindsey C., Justin F., Samantha P., Cody H., and Tyler B. The teachers of the month are Tony Steele and Patty Crump. As usual these students and teachers are chosen based on their positive attitudes and good work. They are also chosen for the effort that they put into their daily work here at Stanly Academy.
Although we only have a few that are considered Students/ Teachers of the month, all of our students and teachers are great. The staff is continuously doing the best they can to help the students graduate high school and be a success and the students are constantly working on effort to make something positive out of their life.
Mrs.Edgerton, the science teacher of Stanly Academy began her career as a teacher 22 years ago. She started out as a housewife with a basic degree in Biology and a tutor for children who needed help in science. After tutoring for awhile she realized that she could teach science with her degree so she became a teacher at a public school. Another interest in her life is storytelling. She learned storytelling from her aunt and mom and began volunteering at different schools. Although Mrs. Edgerton loves her job as a storyteller, if she had to choose one or the other, she would choose to be a teacher because she uses her storytelling as part of her teaching.
Last week, Mrs. Edgerton was in a play called ” This is who we are.” The play about the history of Badin with Susan Sharples as the director.
“Stanly Academy is the best place to teach because it has new adventures everyday.” – A quote from Mrs. Edgerton.
For the month of January the students of the month are Quenton McLendon, Myshia Dunlap, Maria Mahoney, and Brianna Helms. We are very proud of all of our students at Stanly Academy and hope that as we reach the end of this semester, all of our students will pass. We also are proud to announce the teachers of the month; Ms.Lowder and Mr.Carte and thank them for all their hard work here at our school. The last group we would like to mention is the students here that are graduating early; Shea’Ona Harris, Tiante Leak, Braxton Phifer, and William Xiong. These students have worked really hard in order to graduate at the end of this semester.
Today at Stanly Academy, our students and staff had the choice to wear camouflage or dress as twins with someone else here. Ms. Flaherty, the art teacher, got a group of people who didn’t own Camouflage to dress up in black with her so they would not be left out of the Spirit Week. Our students and staff are having a blast with Spirit Week at the Academy and we are excited for the rest of the week to come.
